Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

The true Penitent

Hark! hear the sound on earth is found

Published in 27 hymnals

Full Text

1 Hark! hear the sound, on earth 'tis found,
My soul delights to hear
Of dying love, that's from above,
Of pardon bought so dear.

2 God's ministers, a flaming fire
Are passing through the land,
The voice is "hear, repent and fear,
King Jesus is at hand."

3 Young converts sing and praise their king,
And bless God's holy name;
Whilst older saints leave their complaints
And joy to join the theme.

4 Convinced of sin, men now begin
To call upon the Lord,
Trembling they pray, and mourn the day
In which they scorn'd his word.

5 God's chariot rolls, it frights the souls
Of those who hate the truth;
And saint in prayer, cry, Lord draw near,
Have mercy on the youth!

6 Pour down a shower of thy great power
On every aching heart;
Of all who try, and humbly cry,
That they may have a part.

7 Come sinners, all hear now God's call,
And pray with one accord!
Saints, raise your songs--with joyful tongues,
To hail the approaching Lord.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799
